Friedman Family Assessment By Keith Olson University of Phoenix /NUR 405 Abstract A Friedman Assessment was completed using the Ken family. To complete this assessment the nurse must identify data, developmental stages, environmental data, family structure, family functions, and family stress and coping. Nursing diagnoses are formed to identify concerns and provide a plan of care for the overall health of the Ken family. As a community nurse, assessment is the first step in identifying potential and present health issues. Once identified, the nursing care plan can further progress and community interventions can be addressed.
Friedman’s model views family as a subsystem of society and enables nurses to assess the family system as a whole, as a component of society, and as an interactional system (Stanhope & Lancaster, 20012). In this essay, the participating family, M family, was assessed with using the Friedman Family Assessment Model and given priority nursing diagnoses along with community health nursing interventions to influence the issues positively and effectively. Taking into consideration the impact of family structure, roles, and values, the effects of Watson’s theory of human caring on community health nursing is portrayed overcoming these factors and eventually achieve wellness and health for family, community, and all. The Friedman Family Assessment tool contains collection of family data in different areas such as identifying data, developmental stage and history of family, environmental data, family structure, family functions, and family stress and coping (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2012). In summary of the M family, this is a two-parent family in which 60 year-old RM is the father and retired nurse, and his wife MM is 59 years of age and currently still working as a nurse.
Health care marketing analysis Brandy Marsh HCS 539 May 14, 2012 Debbie Schrager Health care marketing analysis According to The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (n.d.), “prenatal care has been recognized as the cornerstone of our health-care system for pregnant women since the beginning of the twentieth century” (public health importance). Prenatal care is an important aspect of a woman’s pregnancy. For some women obtaining prenatal care can be difficult so prenatal clinics have become a valuable resource. Organizations such as Planned Parenthood of Southern New Jersey offer reduced or sliding scale pricing for women who cannot afford prenatal care. Marketing for Planned Parenthood is vital to the organizations success.

The History of Public Health and the Role of the Community/Public Health Nurse Melissa Wixon Walden University NURS 4011 Section 05, Family, Community and Population-Based Care July 19, 2014 The History of Public Health and the Role of the Community/Public Health Nurse For over one hundred years, nurses have worked within the community to improve the health of its’ citizens, families and overall populations, all while attempting to develop strategies to solve evolving health threats to society. From early colonial times to current times, nurses work feverishly to not only treat the sick but increase the healthy.

After the American Revolution, basic public health services evolved, and with that the eventually establishment of the Red Cross in America.

Family Nursing Since the time of Florence Nightingale, nurses have had family at the forefront of their minds whilst caring for an individual (Wilson 2004). The holistic approach of the nursing model should convey to nurses the importance of the family on the health and the illness of individuals (Friedemann 2002). The term ‘family’ is a complicated one and its different definitions will be discussed within this essay; as it can evoke different meanings not only out-with individual countries but also within a country (Friedemann 2003). The two traditional familial structures are decreasing, whereas a variety of other familial structures, including same-sex couples, are not only increasing but not being seen as ‘abnormal’ (Hanson, 2005). No matter the structure or location, it will be shown all families provide the same support and function.
